Old Arcade Fire Videos

More info and videos after the jump...

Whilst perusing videos for the Decemberists yesterday I stumbled across all of these old Arcade Fire videos. The one above the break was filmed in Maine on Mt Desert Island, a place I have spent a lot of time. The video was filmed on a VERY small budget using help from the students at the College of the Atlantic. The band played a free show for the students of this VERY small school as a thank you. Mind you, all of this took place before Arcade Fire popped off, before the release of Funeral. Crazy how far they went in such a short period of time.

This is a video for the opening track from Funeral. This is the song that made me fall in love with Arcade Fire even if the lyrics are still pretty confusing.

It seems like more than half of the songs from Funeral received a video treatment:

This clip is two of my favorite songs from Arcade Fire's most recent release, Neon Bible taken from a performance for BBC radio 2:
